United Earth Federation - MA-02F2 Seraphim III

In the last few months of the First Colony War, with victory imminent for the UEF, the UEF set out to produce a newer more advanced mass-production Kampfer that could replace the aging Seraphim I and limited production Seraphim II. The answer was the Seraphim III.

 

A huge leap in terms of mass-production Kampfers, the Seraphim III bared little resemblance to the original Seraphim I. It was lighter, faster, more maneuverable, and packed more of a punch. The iconic pilot pods were phased out in favour of the standard chest cockpit. The overall design and components were miles away from the outdated Seraphim I. Parts were even more interchangeable then previous models and the lack of the pilot pod meant that Seraphim IIIs could be equipped with a variety of backpacks. It was also easier for conversion between space and Earth based models.

 

The Seraphim III would remain in service throughout the Second Colony War and the Third Colony War even after the introduction of newer, more effective Kampfers due to ridiculously high production rates making the Seraphim III and all of its derivatives the most mass produced military Kampfer in UEF history.

-The original Seraphim III was built almost a year ago. I think of it with reverence as it was the frame which got me going in my current style. A year later and I decided it needed an update with the newer techniques and ideas I'd picked up in the year since it was first constructed.

-Massive thanks to the GK crew. They helped me along and gave me the will to finish this thing once I'd started. Love you guys. :')

-Features opening cockpit door, upright pilot and a host of other things which the original didn't have and am rather pleased with.
